"Universe" is a term used to describe
a. a politician's constituency
b. the entire group of persons in a given poll.
c. the entire group of persons whose opinions a poll seeks to measure
d. the group that supports the activities of an interest group
A universe or population is the entire group that a poll seeks to measure. Those who actually take the poll are a sample from that universe.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
